    How long will 10166 update to 10240?

    i was just debating migrating my main PC after prepping it (downgrade to win 7 ultimate then upgrade to win 10 build 10166, then let it grab via WU 10240) but from what im seeing now it's not going to be a wise idea,

    how long will it be offered and if the PC itself was activated prior, to the build? (i had a 162 VM Running on the pc in vmware but thats about as far it went.)
